    I don't think this is necessarily true but I'd have to check in this case.

    Great that the preload begins that early but what about my physical copy? I gotta Live Chat I guess..

    for origin i just asked:

    Dude! Would it have killed you to ask when physicals are being shipped out as well as long as you had her? lol

    I can't help but think you will get it later than everyone else. I doubt they would ship early so that it arrives on or before the 25th, but I could be wrong. Just seems to conscientious and convenient for a company like EA.

    It should thanks to the magic of Day One Patch! Day One Patch is the greatest feature in games in recent history. It allows gamers to get their games months before they are actually ready to be shipped. It corrects those niggling bugs like: falling through the world, A.I. randomly failing to initialize, muddy graphics, obvious texture loads, and Fuck you, I will load the level when I damn well please.

    Day One Patch, its like antiseptic spray for your games!

    Warning: Day One Patch may cause 3 hour installation time, "OMG, another 1.2 GB of HDD space", broken animations, game freezes, frustration headaches, ulcers, and bloody discharge. If you have any of these symptoms, you need to calm down, its just a game. Go to Olive Garden and have a nice meal or something. Except for that last one....you should really see a doctor about that.

    I know...I am starting to regret this already. Well they have pleasantly surprised me a couple times so far and it seems they are at least trying to get their shit together so to speak, at least in terms of Origin. Not too surprising, given how much we all love the main competition.

    Maybe they'll let me change it if they can't guarantee I'll have by the 25th.

    That hasn't ever worked, even before Origin existed, been trying to change my main EA profile name by that method since BC2 came out.

    I still can't understand why you don't get both when you buy a physical copy. For instance, I entered my product code for MoH into Origins, and now it will let me download it instead of using the disk. I would think the same would be true for BF3. They should give you the code and ship the disk.

    Maybe I do get both. I am going to ask that first and foremost when I Live Chat. That would be awesomesauce.

    Pretty sure they will ship the disc, which contains the code, that you redeem in Origin. So you do get both, just got to wait for the disc to show up. Instead of them also sending emails out with keys and such. Just like buying a hardcopy of a Steamworks game.

    i tried to change mine (add the extra c) using scrabble, but because i do have digibucc(correct) as an ea id in some other game, it is taken and i can't change it.

    Well that makes no sense... it counts every single Persona everyone has out there? I have like 5x 1Kurgan1 Personas for EA games linked to my profile, so can't see how it would be hard for them to allow me a name change to one of those since I have it locked down. I working on emulating an Android right now to try it myself though, but if what you say is true, thats bad newsfor me :(

    Well I don't know how much it matters, trying my best to emulate the phone, got it working, but that didn't work on Android store, so I had to figure that out, then Android Market doesn't have Scrabble Free, so I have to go to the Android Market website which does have it, but then it says a phone isn't linked to my account so I can't download it :/

    Oh yeah...why am I freaking out? Even if I don't get my copy on the 25th you can't really play on Day 1 (or 2...) anyway! :roll:

    Just passing along some news, Mailman is on vacation from TPU for a bit, he is in the kiddie pool with his arm floaties living it up, eta on being back sounds far off :laugh:

    Up in the air, wouldn't hold your breath for launch, but I'm betting later it will happen.
